Planning your mobility case study

© RMIT Europe and EIT Urban Mobility

We would like you to choose one of these activities to produce a case study.

  • Concept brief exploring the transformation a neighbourhood or part of a city
  • A project plan proposing steps for transforming part of your city
  • An assessment of key liveability and mobility issues
  • A roadmap for future mobility and liveability changes in your city
  • An infographic based on mobility and or health data relating to your locality.

What you produce can be either informal or formal. We don’t expect perfection. Approach this exercise in a way that is most relevant for you and the community or location you choose.

Ideas for your case study

  • create a concept brief in a similar style to the Estonia SMARTA insight study mentioned previously.
  • consider the implications and/or practicalities of implementing a 15-minute city approach.
  • conduct some interviews of community members in your locality who would potentially benefit from or contribute to the ideas or recommendations you are making.

We would like you to create a shareable case study. This can be any one of the following:

  • A blog post or series of blog posts
  • A video (maximum 5 minutes) posted on Youtube or Vimeo
  • A pdf document
  • A podcast or series of podcasts.


Keep the area of your city or locality that you choose to assess limited in scope. It may be better to choose a few blocks within a city or a small suburb or region.

We strongly recommend you keep your mobility activity limited to walking or cycling related interventions. This will become relevant as we guide you toward assessment tools that have been created for these types of mobility.


Before moving on, have a think about your learning and career. The following questions can be used as prompts for your reflections:

  • What might be a useful next step to demonstrate your understanding of mobility, health and cities that would benefit both yourself and the communities with which you work?
  • What would you enjoy doing that would help you learn and potentially make a meaningful contribution to your community?
